thirdstage.ca Gets It's Own URL Shortener
Tuesday, November 02, 2010

[Short Link: http://3rdstg.ca/shortener]

You've all seen these - short and confusing looking links on sites and services like Twitter. I've been using these on the Twitter feed to keep links shorter. They're convenient, but confusing. What's worse is that using these you need to rely on another site somewhere else in the world.  I've wanted to have my own custom shortener for this site for a while now. Well, now I do.

I've set up a service and a new domain name: 3rdstg.ca (a shorter representation of thirdstage.ca) which I will use to create short links that can be used on Twitter and elsewhere. Stories published here will also feature short links at the top, which you can easily copy and paste to share.

As previously reported over the summer, Stryper was recording a new CD called The Covering, which features covers of some of the greatest metal songs. The album was expected released sometime in September, but has been delayed.

According to Stryper's official site, the release will now be sometime in the first quarter of 2011. According to their site, the reason is "the business and label team feel that more set-up time will allow for a stronger release of this amazing recording."

Details on the release date will be posted here when available.

Update February 01: Release date is February 15, 2011

December People Album ArtThe time between Boston albums can be long - very long. So it's natural that members of the band use that time to persue other projects.

Gary Pihl is working with a band called December People. This band, made up of Robert Berry (who Gary has worked with in the band Alliance), Mike Vanderhule, Jack Foster and Dave Medd.  This group performs Christmas music - and does an awesome job of it.

The group released their album Rattle & Humbug October 10, 2010, which features Christmas classics such as Joy to the World, Little Drummer Boy and God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen.  The music is described by the band as Industrial Strength Holiday Music.
